The Poet

I am constantly amazed, delighted, and deeply impressed by the notes my husband leaves me. "Love notes" are a common occurance around here, especially when my husband works late into the night and I do not see him before I go to bed. I'll make his lunch (if he is brown bagging it the next day) and leave a message nearby before I lay down. I can hardly wait to get up in the morning to read his note back to me.

"Measure the oceans with tsps and I will still love you more."

That is how Tuesday's note ended. I think I have just fallen in love with him all over again. I have shared my husband's poetry with you before, so you all have witnessed his talent. True talent. His creativity and originality has often caused me (as it did on Tuesday) to ask him if he had seen that line somewhere or if he "made it up". When you have to ask a question like that, you know it's good.
